Rive, a twin-stick shooter/platformer hybrid from Two Tribes, was originally released for the PC and PS4 last year. The game was also in the works for the Wii U, but development difficulties forced the team to consider moving the game to the Switch.
Today, Two Tribes confirmed that Rive will indeed launch on the Switch sometime this year.
Co-Founder Martijn Reuvers confirmed the Switch version of Rive will be playable at an “ultra-fast” 60FPS, and he said the developer is also working on a Switch-exclusive expansion:
Rive is a great fit for Nintendo Switch. It was always intended as an explosive ode to the action games of the early nineties. Nostalgic, yet thoroughly modern. And we feel that Nintendo Switch, too, is all about bringing the experience from our youth, playing deep and skill-based games together, to the current day.
A launch date for Rive’s Nintendo Switch debut will be announced soon.
